Why should people opt for a mini version when they can't get the best experience on the original Switch? The potential of a such a model would be limited by default.
You do realise you dont make any sense again!? Buy your point Pro and X would need to be best selling option of PS4/XB1 because they offer best experience for PS4/XB1. Low price option has much higher potential for sales than higher price option, with lower price option Switch will be much more popular among kids, families and casuals that actualy one of most impoartant part of market. There is reason why Nintendo released very low price option for 3DS in form of 2DS, 2DS is selling very well.
You are comparing models who improve graphics vs a model that goes against the Switch strategy.
Not to mention that, to take real advantage of the small increase you'd have to have a 4K TV. Another, not so cheap, extra cost.
In your words, you are comparing a core experience improvement vs a non-core experience.
Can you get how both can't really be compared?
"Low price option has much higher potential for sales"
GC's 99$ didn't cause a sales burst, did it?
Switch already has enough elements to make it appealing at 300. Lowering the price wouldn't necessarily make sales explode.
"with lower price option Switch will be much more popular among kids, families and casuals that actualy one of most impoartant part of market"
Lower price point can be achieved without the Mini model.
PS3, XB360, PS4, at least, showed that you don't need to lower the price that much or that you need to go after the kids market to sell 80+ million consoles. And Nintendo is now in this market too.
You don't need to directly address the kids market to actually sell to it.
Kids look up to older kids and follow trends. If you sell to the older kids you'll eventually reach the younger demograhics.

How many times has Nintendo offered a model that could be deemed inferior to the original versus the number of revisions that could be deemed superior to the original version?
2DS is the exception, not the rule.
And let's not forget that if 3D has been relevant and had not caused a backlash at the time, you probably wouldn't have gotten a 2DS.
Also, an investment in 2DS, in the form of 2DS XL, was - and probably is - the last revision ever for 3DS. Before that, you had Nintendo betting on evolving the regular 3DS.
What you are basically asking is for Nintendo to simply overlook the success they had with it's current market and the weight of the Switch (hybrid concept) and just do a U turn and go back to their old ways (kids, families).
It just doesn't make sense: this new Nintendo is where they should put their money and time on - now that they are being successful.
The other market can come later. There's no rush and it would even be sending the wrong message to it's current market!
